400-Pound Gorilla Sent To Therapy

"Patrick," a 430-pound western lowland gorilla has been characterized as anxious and is being sent to therapy. CNN's John Berman reports.

Patrick has spent 18 years at the Dallas Zoo where his keepers call him beautiful, intelligent and outgoing – towards humans.

Zoo officials say the gorilla tends to go ape on the ladies and once bit a female gorilla and sneered at another.

So now, Patrick is leaving behind his bachelor pad and being moved to the Riverbanks Zoo in South Carolina, where they will work to re-socialize him
